Is an Empty Life

foolish acts

 

 A pretentious, showy life is an empty life; a plain and simple life is a full life. Proverbs 13:7 The Message

I remember being laughed at for having a simple basic cell phone. Can it be used to send and receive calls, yes. Can it be used to send and receive tex messages Yes. Then what more do I need. These folks would then laugh and tell me about all the gadgets on their cell phones. The questions asked would be do you need or use them do you know how to work them all they why did you waste all that money purchasing something you will not use Of course they would brag about it being a certain make while mine was from a lesser known (although reliable) maker. Then they would be asked how much they paid for said cell phone to which they would respond that they paid over a hundred times more that I did. So you went into debt just to pump up your ego? Sounds foolish to me. Then they are miserable because they become slaves to the banks paying for an overpriced piece of metal while I am living a contented life.

It is the same with clothes, food and living accommodations and every other aspect of life. They stupidly go into debt way over their head and live a miserable life while I live a simple life walking with Christ and am quite contented and grateful for His blessings of meeting my daily needs.

He who loves money will not be satisfied with money, nor he who loves abundance with its gain. This too is vanity (emptiness). Ecclesiastes. 5:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Follow the proper leader.

Jesus lived a simple life in communion with Jehovah and was very content. Should we not follow His lead? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Greed and vanity are a sin and there is always a price to pay for following the devils lead

“Sin will take you farther than you want to go, keep you longer than you want to stay, and cost you more than you want to pay.” — Author Unknown

Prayer: Exaltation unto You oh most sanctified Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for generous provision You faithfully provided me with every day. I extol Thee in the name of He whose cherished blood provides the key to open Heavens door Jesus Christ. Amen.

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

The Power to Overcome.

                                        

I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace. In the world you have tribulation and distress and suffering, but be courageous [be confident, be undaunted, be filled with joy]; I have overcome the world.” [My conquest is accomplished, My victory abiding.] John 16:33 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The closer we walk with Christ the more the devil will attack us to destroy our loving relationship with Christ. He knows he is going to Hell and wants all the company he can get. Besides, the devil is proud so it irks him to no end to see the righteous worshiping Christ instead of him. Do not worry, Christ defeated satan on the cross and on resurrection day. He is strong enough to help you defeat the wimp satan.

Then there is society.

In todays world the motto is: if it feel s good do it. In the Christian world it says if we love others first we will be filled with love and joy. This convicts those in the world and they will viciously attack us. Do not worry Christ will fill our hearts with peace which will infuriate the world ever more.

The world says: If you just try hard enough you can do whatever you want to do. Christ says we are made to serve Him and allow Him to make the choices in our lives. This convicts the world and so they hate us and cruelly attack us. Do not worry, our Heavenly warrior King provided the tools to defeat them.

On our earthly journey we will always find stiff resistance but God blesses us with the power to overcome. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hoshe’ah ( The Lord Saves ) for blessing me with Your awesome strength, wisdom, provision and protection against the weakling satan and from the superficial attacks by those stumbling about in the dark world.

I extol Thee in the name of He who is the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

You do so at Your Own Risk.

                                    

He who turns his ear away from listening to the law [of God and man], Even his prayer is repulsive [to God]. Proverbs 28:9 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever felt Jehovah was speaking to you about something in your life and then you ignore Him?

You do so at your own risk.

When Jehovah speaks with us about something that requires attention it is for our own good.

If you ignore His advice you with eventually suffer the consequences for it. Then when you go cry babying unto Him, He will ignore your prayers. They smell like a bad fart to Him. He is disgusted with you because you refuse to listen to Him.

Now when you finally smarten up and obey Him, He forgives you.

It is always difficult to obey Him especially when it is something deep seated in our minds.

Many times it will take good Christian counselling to even get to admit we have the problem.

Once we accept the problem then it is up to us to try to resolve it. We can get all the counselling in the world but if we do nothing to try to resolve it, the counselling is useless.

Sometimes the problem is too big for us to handle.

That is when we go unto the Holy Spirit and sincerely, respectfully ask for His help. Then and only then will the issue be resolved.

I have gone through both sides of it and can tell you it is very difficult but rewarding.

One of them for example was independence, which most of us suffer from. It took many years before that was finally destroyed and expelled from my mind and heart. Sometimes it took my own effort, sometimes it took the assistance from the Holy Spirit. I rejoice over that every day.

“When God turns away from us because of selfishness, it is not rejection. Rather, it is an invitation to follow Him to a place we would rather not go.” — Brennan Manning

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for gracefully educating me about the ruinous dispositions with in my soul. Thank you for the assistance You overwhelmingly provide me with to conquer these weaknesses. I exalt Thee in the name of He who has overcome the world Jesus Christ. Amen

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Why Did You Doubt?

 

Immediately Jesus extended His hand and caught him, saying to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” Matthew 14:31 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

When we are baby Christians it is natural to doubt Christ because we have little to no experience with Him.

As we mature in our walk with Him our faith (which means trust) in Him is to grow until it is as solid as the rock we stand upon. To do otherwise is a willful act of disobedience unto Him. Now there will be times of testing. When we fail and repent the sin is forgiven.

But, the lesson will be continuously repeated until our faith is solidified so we can take the next growth in our relationship with Him.

This pattern continues all the way to our death bed when we have solid faith that He is taking us to the second Heaven ( no we will not be with Christ when we die. That only occurs after that Judgement Day. To preach that we will be in Heaven with Christ immediately after death is a lie).

To doubt Christ is a insult. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) that You are always with me, guiding me, teaching me, protecting me and providing for me with Your immeasurable love.  May I never doubt the One I know for sure loves me more than anyone else ever could. I praise You in the name of He who walks beside me every day Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Do Not Doubt My.

                                        

I have loved you just as the Father has loved Me; remain in My love [and do not doubt My love for you]. John 15:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

All of us who have walked the Christian walk have from time to time faced uncertainty whether Jesus loved us or even if He was real. As we mature we grow more and more assured of it.

Many times we go through intense trails and tribulations, sorrows and times of famine. We wonder whether Jesus has deserted us, whether we have angered Him and cry out to Him.

We are met with silence.

Or, so it seems.

When these events have passed and we reflect upon them we can see Jesus’ firm but gentle hand guiding us through them as well as providing provision during them.

It has occurred to me on numerous occasions and only caused my faith in Him to grow stronger and stronger.

“As sure as God puts His children in the furnace he will be in the furnace with them. Charles H Spurgeon

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for blessing me with a Divine love which none other can compare. Thank you that You will never leave me nor desert me even when many times it seems as if You are absent from me. I praise You in the name of my ever present best friend Jesus Christ. Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

All Things are Possible

                                       

But Jesus looked at them and said, “With people [as far as it depends on them] it is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

All thing are possible with Jehovah but not all things are probable.

So we will say you want money to go to school to become a veterinarian but Jehovah wants you to become a waitress. He will not grant you that for which He has not made you for.

However that does not take away the fact that He can and does accomplish the improbable in our lives.

If you had of told my mom when I was ten years old what Jehovah had planned for my life she would have laughed so hard she would have been in tears. It would not only have seemed improbable but down right impossible.

Jehovah works in His way not ours. It is our duty to have faith (trust) in Him that His ways are always what is best for us, even if we do not understand it and to obey His guidance.

“Do not let your happiness depend on something you may lose… only [upon] the Beloved who will never pass away.” — C. S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with what I need, not what I desire in my walk with You. Thank you for providing me with the necessary resources to serve You every day throughout the day so as to give glory and praise unto You and to be a light in the dark world that guides the lost unto You. I exalt You in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen.

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Did My Soul Become.

                                                  

 The one who is taught the word [of God] is to share all good things. Galatians 6:6 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

This is something I believe is needed in our society today. Instead of the me generation we need to be teaching the younger generation the We Generation.

So many folks are chasing after pleasure in the material world only to discover that there is an emptiness inside them. That emptiness is love for others.

I do not know of any who volunteer in the community that suffers depression.

The greatest treasure is the richness of the heart. The only way to enrich yourself in this treasure is to give it away. The more you give away the greater your treasure will be. Joseph a son of Jehovah

As well, when the community is involved in doing volunteer work within the community there will be less vandalism because folks have invested time in the community. So if people volunteer to do clean up in a park they are less likely to vandalize it. When they go and cut the grass or shovel the snow out of a needy neighbours property they will be less likely to vandalize it or do a break and enter there.

The less I spent on myself, the more I gave to others, the fuller of happiness and blessing did my soul become. –Hudson Taylor Prayer:

Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for blessing me with teaching me how to be loving towards others and then providing me with ample opportunities to exhibit Your divine love within my local community. I exalt Thee in the name of He who was and is the perfect example of love Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day. It is in our greatest time of need that we grow the closest to Christ.
